Soups are comfort foods that warm you up on a cool evening. Make soups such as leek and potato, cauliflower or broccoli thick and creamy with substitutions for traditionally-used creams and butters. Try substituting 1% or 2% milk for cream in recipes and stir in several tablespoons of yogurt or sour cream just before serving. Add a dollop of sour cream or plain yogurt to each bowl of soup when serving, which when stirred in, makes for a creamier taste experience. You can also add pureed potatoes, white beans or cauliflower to thicken your soups. Note that potatoes tend to dull down flavours so make sure to add fresh herbs to potato soup bases to sharpen taste, and hold back on the salt.
